Enjoy high-performance classic motoring in the modern world.
Features
Every CAV GT is equipped with the following features as standard.
From our new Gen3 platform to the full leather interior, we're a cut above the rest.

Order your GT40 replica as a rolling chassis or complete turn-key:

Rolling chassis: Fully fitted without the drive train
Turn-key: Completely assembled and ready to drive


Gen3 Platform
Our Gen3 platform is a strong and versatile foundation for the new CAV generation.

By allowing our designs to evolve naturally, we have transformed them into crafted works of performance art. Form following function, high-precision machining and aircraft materials combine in a platform that is as beautiful to behold as it is exacting in its performance.
CAV GT replica Ford GT40 Stainless Steel monocoque chassis


Chassis
Our proprietary Stainless Steel monocoque is the keystone of the CAV design. It has received international praise for its strength and hand-finished beauty.

In its third generation, every panel is 3D modelled, laser cut and TIG welded for the greatest accuracy.

The updated bulkhead and rear section now accommodates a wider range of engines; including the all-new emissions-compliant Modular range from Ford Racing.

Torsional rigidity is maintained at 32kNm/° without increasing the total weight.


Bodywork
In our third generation, all CAV bodywork is manufactured with the highest-quality vinylester composites and high-temperature resins.

The outcome is a repeatable process that increases strength and reduces weight; whilst creating a stable and high-quality surface finish.

Our body panels are all shaped by hand for a pure and crafted finish. All GT40's are subtly different and we continue to embody the human touch that is so critical to the GT40 experience.
